    Default The story behind your username...

    There are some obscure/creative/interesting usernames out there, and I thought it would be interesting to know where they came from...

    Tell your story here!

    I've used this for maybe 9 years now, or some variation (djr33 is my choice, with variations chosen based on availability or limitations on patterns).
    It's not complex, though seems to confuse people-- it's my initials followed by a favorite number. That's it

    ...I used this username just recently last January as I decided to indulge myself into public forums

    ...Just a combination of my initial name and surname...nothing creepy whatsoever

    for me, its just my initials . since there is so much usernames/ passwords to remember nowadays, i just get the shortest & easiest to remember. I have short-term memory

    How about your username hmsnacker123?

    From when I was fairly young (4 or 5) till a few months ago, I've sought out a career in medicine (just changed my mind in lieu of bigger and better things). Medyman comes from my middle school interpretation of that. A variation of it was my first screenname on AIM. I haven't really used it since but something when registering on this forum made me revive it.

    Nowadays, on other design-related forums, I use a username much more meaningful -- my web design company's name (I spare you guys the shameless plug).
